Hearing Me's Carly meets The National

  • 27th August 2019

Earlier this year we recorded a documentary for BBC World Service with teacher Carly, who due to sudden hearing loss in her left ear, can no longer attend gigs. It led to a moving moment when she realised she’d never hear her favourite band, The National again. The National heard our documentary and invited Carly to watch them play side of stage (where it's much quieter) at Mad Cool Festival.

Not only did they dedicate a song to her, they also played for her in their dressing room too. An amazing outcome.
